Physics

You have been asked to keep a 35.1 kilogram crate from sliding down a 50.03° incline. The coefficient of friction between the crate and the incline is 0.26, and it's on the surface of Mars (gravitational acceleration at the surface of Mars is 3.75 m/s^2). How much force must you apply to the crate?

Can someone please explain the steps to this one?
